Here is my anniversary card for the blog hop. I took two pictures, showing the card totally closed and also opening to show the gate fold with the heart attached to one side and the sentiment on the other. I used RI's Rose Heart Wreath and a lovely anniversary sentiment on my card. The dp is from Close to My Heart. I stamped the heart on velum, colored with markers from the back and attached on a scallop heart cut out with my nesties. I added a heart punch in the center and a little rose to complete the card.

So how about making and posting a card celebrating our Blogaversary and come hopping and commenting for another chance to win? Remember to leave a comment at our blog too and refer there for all the details.

Stamping smiles, Karen
